. sounds riveting. in the guest spot today is dan gross, the columnist and global business editor for "newsweek" daily beast who says in his latest piece republicans still haven't recognized the new reality. dan, you may be right. i don't know. i guess we'll see. if republicans do agree to raise taxes, do you think that democrats will agree to any health care entitlement reform? which is the harder sell? >> no, i don't think so. that's why i'm so pessimistic or actually so optimistic about going over this fiscal cliff. usually when i threaten to write about something every day until it is resolved, it gets resolved quickly. we'll see in this case. >> that's power. >> the election kind of ratified the stance. which is the bush tax cuts should expire for those making over a certain amount. the steps republicans are taking while useful in negotiating. we see the need for more revenues. okay, we understand we need to negotiate and sort of stamp our feet, they're still talking -- they're having two different conversations. they're saying it's okay to have more revenues if it comes from
of the top contenders for the job, the u.n. ambassador susan rice. dan lothian's noticed the change in tone. dan's joining us now with more. what's the latest on the successor for hillary clinton, dan? >> reporter: that's right. this is senator, john mccain, who had been working to discredit ambassador rice, had been digging in on this, criticizing her, prompting the president at his news conference to say, if they wanted to go after anyone, they should go after him. now there's a noticeable shift and senator mccain says he's ready to listen. from threat tong block her possible nomination to south korea south korea to a willingness to hear her out, senator john mccain seems to be dialing back his public opposition to ambassador susan rice. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> reporter: another vocal critic, senator lindsey graham, is still expressing doubts about her but avoided answering whether he would still stand in the way of a rice nomination. >> when she comes over, if she does, there will be a lot of questions asked after he
's go to cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: joe, one of those concerns is about too much power in the hands of one person. we look back a few months ago it was unclear whether egypt was an ally of the u.s. now a senior administration official saying a relationship of trust has developed between president obama and president morsi. but as we know in any relationship things can get complicated. at the white house, a sense of calm kicking off the holiday season with the arrival of a 19-foot christmas tree. >> it is perfect. it's exactly what we needed. >> reporter: while the president headed to the golf course at joint base andrews. but the white house is closely watching developments in egypt. protests, violent at times and anger over what some see as president morsi's power grab, as declarations preventing any court from overturning his decisions. >> ilt appears the timing is curious. he's gotten this bump particularly for his role in mediating the cease-fire from the united states and from others. he's really seen as emerging stronger from this. >> repor
. anyhow, stan is with us as well as the regular team. peter ogborn and dan henning. >> good morning. >> bill: phil backert has the phones and cyprian bowlding has the video camera this morning. tom ricks, great writer, great journalist, basically a war correspondent, author of this new book "the gamble" won the pulitzer prize for his first book "the fiasco," was invited on fox news to talk about benghazi. he started out by saying i think this whole thing has been hyped by fox news. jon scott the anchor was offended by the fact he would suggest that fox news, an ambassador was killed. how can you mean hyping it. here's how that exchange goes. listen to tom ricks flatten fox news. >> when you have four people dead, including the first u.n. ambas -- u.s. ambassador in more than 30 years, how do you call that hype? >> how many security contractors died in iraq? do you know? >> i don't. >> no. nobody does because nobody cared. we know that several hundred died but there was never an official count done of security c
they usually do it. >> bill: they may get something done. good morning team. peter ogborn and dan henning. >> good morning. >> bill: phil backert on phones. cyprian bowlding as always on the video cam. good to have you all with us. so mirror, mirror on the wall. who is the sexiest man of all? do we know? >> it is a tough question to answer. i know who the sexiest person in this room is. >> bill's right here. >> bill: so the onion of course, put out a special edition a month or so ago saying that they thought the sexiest man alive was kim jong un. >> row under it. >> bill: the new 2-year-old head of north korea. we knew it was a joke. except the people of korea. they put out their leading newspaper -- >> in china. the chinese communist newspaper -- >> bill: this is great. one of ours has been declared the sexiest person on the planet. neil cavuto yesterday reported that story and then followed up by introducing john mccain to talk about susan rice but they got back and forth on the sexiest man alive. >> b
shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. so, dan, is it even worth -- is it even worth the president nominating susan rice? because there just doesn't seem to be any meeting of the minds about her on the republican side. >> reporter: you're right. i guess it's always possible that the woit house could give up the fight on her but also possible is that if the president believes she is the right person for that position, then i don't think this is something that will move him off of susan rice. but nonetheless, the white house is pushing very hard in defending her, as you pointed out. we should point out again that this is all a hypothetical discussion because the president has not nominated her. nonetheless the white house defend i defending her, saying that she was only acting on information that came from the intelligence community and really that everyone is focused on the wrong thing. what the focus should be on is on what happened in benghazi, who is responsible for it and this those people be brought to justice, carol. >> susan
paper in san diego talking about dan mckennon and it says navy pilot, radio and airline executive, appointed to two federal boards and son of san diego congressman. those are a lot of things but dan was so much more than all of those even put together. first, his father was a democrat congressman from san diego here in the 1950's. probably stood at this table like i am speaking now. dan was a page when we still had pages in the house in the 1950's during the truman administration as well. he had a great respect and love for this country and he had a great respect and love for this body and the institution. he has some great claims to fame. one of those is this -- as a young man, dan served in the navy as a helicopter pilot and he's credited with 62 saves on land or sea. that's more saves during peace time than any other navy pilot in history. he loved the navy and loved flying and that led him to other things in life. he was a great pilot. he was inspired to fly from some words taken from the movie "the bridge over toko" and i will summarize what made him want to be a helicopter p
. our dan lothian is watching the comings and goings at the white house. and at some point, dan, congress is going to have to either come together on this and work with the president on this, and yet we're seeing all these various different meetings all around the communities and the country. it looks like there's a particular strategy that's playing out when it comes to the president right now. >> reporter: that's right. a lot of negotiations have taken place in the staff -- on the staff level. the president himself did speak with speaker john boehner on the phone over the weekend. there was that meeting with the lawmakers, the leadership just before the president went overseas on his southeast asia trip. but so far, no additional meetings that we know of on the schedule for the president to sit down with congressional leadership to try to hammer this out. i can tell you that i spoke with an administration official who told me that treasury secretary timothy geithner will be playing a leading role in these live in negotiation negotiations -- fiscal cliff negotiations. gene spel

. >> ryan, you're back with us now. is it maybe that they didn't attack the 47% statement because dan senior is right, they were still holding out that they might win and wanted to be in the cabinet or wanted some assignment and when he made the gift statement he had already lost so there was nothing for opportunists to lose at that point? >> right. that's exactly what they are doing. you know, they kind of ran this campaign the same way they've been running every presidential campaign since nixon's southern strategy, right through willy horton up until today. they probably knew this was the last time that they could run this play because of the changing demographics but they figured if we can eat one more out, let's take it. ana marie makes a good point. where are they going to go next? it's not like they got into this position by accident. you know, through this southern strategy, they've created a self-reinforcing ecosystem where you have conservative media and a conservative base all feeding off each other. and that means that if anybody, if the base tries to move or somebody within the
was in the clinton administration as an assistant secretary for africa. her policies in africa and suh dan were controversial. there were other issues she's been involved in, but she's got a very big job at the u.n. there are meetings on thursday and a general assembly vote has been scheduled on palestinian stateho statehood. a vote that's gripped the attention of all of the middle east and the middle east experts. and presumably, the u.n. ambassador ought to be someone well regarded around the world and is and now she's fighting for her future life in this very partisan atmosphere in washington. it's puzzling. the white house is sticking by her for now. she's not yet been nominated. harry reid said they believe the committees in charge chaired by john kerry should be in charge of this and not members from other committees like homeland security and intelligence and armed services who are getting involved in this. but as you pointed out, none of the republican senators asking questions chair anything. it's becoming very personal and very puzzling indeed. >> one last sort of puzzling hmt of this
filibustering but hair said something. let me read the comment from dan five officer. the president has said that hasn't changed in the president's supports majority leader reid's efforts to reform the filibuster process. it's pretty heavy. >> it is. it depends on who is in control of senate and the congress as far as how far a debate goes. i think it's interesting that there have been interesting research projects done, especially when they say it's the worst that it's ever been. when it comes to delaying tactics in the senate, it is the worst it's ever been. the fill bust sister filibuster is used more often that ever. it would be nice if something was done about that, if congress would see negotiation work in their every day lives. i don't know what the tipping point is going to be. maybe as things get worse and worse there will be a tipping point on it. >> ana marie cox and joy ann reid, thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >>> breaking news, secretary clinton's first public comments about susan rice. >>> and table for two? president obama's having lunch with mr. 47%. i wonder

a few words about our california former attorney general, congressman dan lungren. congressman lungren was first elected to congress in 1978, where his legal background was instrumental in his leadership on judiciary, criminal juiceties and immigration issues. he was called back to state service in 1989 and successfully ran for attorney general where he served from 1991 to 1999. as attorney general, congressman lungren helped author and later defended in court california's landmark three strikes and you're out law. during his tenure and due to his tough on crime policies. crime plunged 30% to historic lows in california. after a few years in the private sector -- sector and the aftermath of september 11, 2001, congressman lungren decided to return to congress and was re-elected in 2004. since his return, congressman lungren has used his time and talents as a member of the judiciary and homeland security committee. throughout his career, congressman lungren has supported, and been supported by his wonderful wife bobbie and their family. thank you, congressman lunfwren for your contribut
to dan gillerman, well known ambassador in israel. he said the only way it will end is stamp out hamas. can that really be done? >> first of all i agree with the ambassador. i think he is spot on. with the ideology they have that calls for the destruction of israel the only way you are going to defeat them is actually get them on the ground. now that is going to be very challenging because a lot of them have a backdoor to go into egypt. with president morsi being a muslim brotherhood, he is supporting them, although he played a key role in this truce. the fact is to stop this from happening they are going to have to destroy hamas. >> gregg: hamas will rearm with iranian made rockets and other weapons that are smuggled in through gaza through sudan and egypt. egypt says, of course, and did just several days -- we'll that i can sure they don't rearm. you don't believe that, do you? >> not at all. egypt has been letting them come through the corridor and their part of the problem. when we had mubarek there, he was pretty good about cutting the flow of weapons. that is one of new challenge
down and dan rather stepping in. i think there was competition. there was jealousy. there was envy. uncomfortable about walter having stepped down and dan rather stepping in. i think there was competition. there was jealousy. there was envy. i think on walter's part there was some regret. he was such a young man to leave that job. he was such an icon even in his own day. what made me excited was that, through all of that, the reportg did not change at all. in some ways, it gradually did start to change at cbs. but, for me, i could not believe it. i felt like these people were so professional. i was scared to death. that is a good thing, i think, that you feel like you have a lot of experience and you have done a lot of reporting and producing and you understand television news, but you are surrounded people who are really good and challenge you. i love that. i felt like i was able to learn some of the more traditional values you will at the school that started in our building. i will talk about those a little bit as we go. i also got very fortunate because i ended up overseas withi
, there is also a dan malloy who passed major legislation earlier this year in connecticut. where there is a john king, there is also a kevin hougher in. now the lines have blurred even more. i think kevin is a democrat working for a republican governor. this is even truer in the electorate. you saw washington state, which i mentioned, georgia, approve charter schools for the first time. the voters in indiana out ofed tony bennett, voters in indianapolis approved reform minded candidates for school board who were supported by democrats for education reform. i know indianapolis is not synonymous with indiana. i grew up in chicago. but it strikes me as a complication in the traditional coalition. maybe it's urban versus suburban. it might also have to do with organization and the fact that the public may support part of the reform agenda. not other parts. some candidates but not others. so reforms have to get down deep at the ground level and fight the local battle and create broad, center based coalitions to win these fights. fourth, my class point, is that implementation is key. we've got to get
. >> there are just five weeks until the fiscal cliff takes place. agricultural secretary dan goodman talks about efforts in congress to create a bipartisan agreement. from washington journal this is 40 minutes. >> is right after an election the best time to heed calls on citizenship. ? more ground be gained? >> well, think the president hass more choices. the public gave president obama a clear victory. congress is divide although the democrats picked up some seats in both places. if elections have consequences, wouven the consequences is the public has spoken. it's up to the legislative body and the president to work together like the fis cliff and the deficit. there's no better time to get a kick in the rear ends than after an election. >> you wrote a brees the democrats and the republicans agree. you looked at area where is you see agreement. as we head into this lame duck session and look at system of the big economic things on the table, do you see places that there are an agreement? >> you think we can easily win agreement. the issue of taxes and deficits and spending cuts. i mean, you've
legal in the country. this is about 50 minutes. >> dan has written a wonderful book but it you have not seen the exhibit downstairs, i think he will be impressed with what has been put together in celebration of the prohibition and anti prohibition movement. it is exciting to talk about prohibition for the reason that the election has put the question of anti prohibition before us all over again. in addition to the ballot initiative in colorado and washington, we have medical use approved in massachusetts and two new announcements in rhode island and maine that legislations will take up the question of decriminilization of marijuana for recreational use. the question of the day is one i will offer today which is what lessons can we draw from prohibition for today's issue? >> the first one we know that prohibition was a terrible failure. despite the best of intentions, there were good reasons for prohibition. the efforts did not succeed. the comparison i make is to prostitution. every society since the dawn has tried to outlaw prostitution and no one has succeeded. it is part of a wo
this question -- why does dan lungren want me to die? as did a 19-year-old. who indicated that he had suffered some paralysis from an accident. as did a 40-year-old woman, approximately, for some disease she had. stunning. stunning. only thing i could see on the other side of the philosophical divide would be someone who is an army vet, having been paralyzed, sitting in a wheelchair, looking in -- at the camera, saying about a member who had voted against a defense bill, why do you want me to die? why do you want me to be in a wheelchair? in either case the civility is out the window. the ability to talk about an issue that is underlying it is last -- is lost. in the example i gave, the question would be was an appropriate level of funding for defense, were there certain problems with the defense bill? not do you want this veteran to die? in the case that i cited in which i was the subject of that ad, the issue was embreeon exstem cell research. embryonic stem cell research. not the question of what is the ethical thing to do in a very difficult circumstance. former president george w. bush ha
